Celebrating DMU’s long history of international partnerships and collaborations

Celebrating DMU’s long history of international partnerships and collaborations

In light of recent events, we, in the archive, wanted to show our support for the #LoveInternational Campaign launched by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Dominic Shellard, at DMU on the 28th June 2016 (@DMU Leicester) by showcasing some materials from the archive that are a testament to how DMU has always valued and promoted international relationships and projects.

This sample of prospectuses illustrates how multiculturalism, diversity, and international collaboration are at the very heart of the university and its courses.
